TASTE OF CHERRY (T’AM E GUILASS) (1997)
95 MINUTES, IRAN/FRANCE
DIRECTED BY Abbas Kiarostami
CAST: HOMAYOUN ERSHADI, ABDOLRAHMAN BAGHERI, AFSHIN KHORSHID BAKHTIARI
A tribute to the great (but criminally underseen in Australia) filmography of Iranian director Abbas Kiarostami, who passed away two years ago. Taste of Cherry was his Cannes Palme d’Or winner, a drama about a man facing his life and mortality, and the people he meets on his spiritual journey. Replete with beautiful unedited long takes and complex characters, this is cinema at its simplest and purest. Make sure you have time to stick around for coffee afterwards, as you WILL want to discuss and analyse this with fellow ReelMac members.
